Modifying SharePoint List Toolbar Buttons with List Formatting

#SharePoint #ListFormatting

Have you ever wished you could modify the standard toolbar buttons (New, Edit, Share, etc) in your SharePoint or Microsoft Lists? Now we can thanks to new SharePoint List Formatting capabilities! We can use JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) to change the text of our buttons, hide them completely or move them to the overflow area.

This functionality gives us the ability to truly customize our lists and has the added benefit of letting us hide some of these elements from plain sight when we’re using SharePoint lists as a back end for our Power Apps canvas applications. With this capability we can hide the New and Edit buttons from users so they’ll turn to your Power App instead of trying to bypass it in the list directly.
